Nintendo 3DS Graphics Design (3DS Series #005)

Starting off from yesterday’s 3DS Photography, today I’ll reveal how I created those images.

  • Starting off with Getting Kreative with Kirby, this was one of the simpler graphics. Simply opening up AR Games, I pulled out my Kirby card and pressed “A” until he’s in the pose shown in the graphic. Then I simply pull out an actual, real-life notebook, and place Kirby immediately below it, so that it appears his drawing has been etched onto the paper.
  • Metroid vs Zelda was a bit more difficult than meets the eye. First I set the Metroid figure on the ground, set on the pose of my choice. Then I pulled out my Zelda card and made sure the Nintendo emblem, and the bulk of Zelda’s identifying graphic were visible to the 3DS. The tricky part was allowing the 3DS to see both cards simultaneously within the short space I provided.
  • That’s a Wrap was quite easy. As with Kirby, I simply used my Kodak as a prop, and switched through the AR Box’s poses until the director’s seat was available.
  • HNI_0050, aka, Flying Mario, was by far the easiest to create. Simply holding Mario’s AR Card in the air at an angle, I made an easy graphic.
  • HNI_0053 was the most difficult out of all these graphics, which goes to say, not really difficult at all. I simply whipped out my Kodak, took a video of the Eyes-in-Box AR Card, and replayed it. It was somewhat difficult to get the 3DS Cameras to pick up on the Kodak image, but it goes to show you don’t really need the original card to play the AR Games. My original intention was to make two box AR’s avatars appear side by side, but it appears the 3DS is smarter than that.
